That's right 'dumpster fire' is official word of 2016. It was apparently due to the toxic political season, tragic shootings and the giant amount of high-profile celebrity deaths.

I understand, but I had a pretty good 2016 personally. There were some definite lows in our nation. Do you agree with the 2016 word of the year?
